Success on the road: FC pick up another impressive away win under Reynolds

Success on the road: FC pick up another impressive away win under ReynoldsAfter securing a second successive away win at the weekend against Hereford we take a look how the squad is applying to new boss Neil Reynolds’ attacking style of football.

So far, the FC players seem to have adapted quickly to Reynolds’ free-flowing style of play and its worked wonders based on recent performances and results.

Having achieved his first win the week prior at Blyth Spartans, Reynolds has now overseen FC United achieve more league away wins than in the whole of last season with the victory over Hereford.

He is also unbeaten in his first four games, with the club themselves on a five-game unbeaten run.
Against Hereford on Saturday that attacking play proved too much for FC’s opponents to handle.

Within five first-half minutes, Hereford found themselves go from being level to three goals behind.

Tom Peers opened the scoring in the 25th minute, adding to the debut goal he scored the week before at Blyth.

Hereford captain Harvey Smith then put Lewis Thompson’s cross through his own net three minutes later, before Kurt Willoughby wrapped the game up just a minute after.

The home side got a late consolation in the second half despite the best efforts of the FC defence, but it didn’t ultimately matter to the final result.

That win took FC’s run to five games unbeaten and lifted the side to 18th in the league table, three points clear of the relegation zone.

The FC squad in on a brilliant run of form under new boss Reynolds, who will be hoping it can continue long into the future.

Building on the success of the past two victories, Reynolds will now be targeting his side’s first home league win of the season.

We now look ahead to a midweek away trip to Mossley in the Manchester Premier Cup (13th November) before welcoming Telford to Broadhurst Park on Saturday in the National League North (17th November).
